I am an assistant professor at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Digital Security Group, and part of the CESCA Lab. My current research focuses on hardware security, in particular on techniques for leakage detection.
Between 2011-2020 I was with Riscure, first as a security evaluation manager responsible for executing high-assurance security evaluation projects and later as the product manager for the training unit. Between 2008-2010 I was a senior scientist at Philips, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. I finished my Ph.D., entitled Cryptography with noisy data, in 2008 under Pieter Hartel and Jeroen Doumen. For my Ph.D. work and my contribution to the advance of biometric research, I was awarded the 2008 EBF European Biometrics Research Industry Award by European Biometric Forum.
My main research interest is hardware security, emphasizing the advancement of tools to create secure hardware; below is a short overview of my professional career.
